TEACHER IN THE MAKING COURTESY

TABLE of CONTENTS

Name: Melea Maglalang Title: News Intern When and how did you get interested in journalism? I initially got into journalism when I was in high school. I’ve always loved writing, but I found a real connection to journalism when I realized how much I loved listening to people talk about their own passions through the articles I would write. The happiness I see in people when they have the opportunity to share their stories is one of my favorite parts of journalism.

You’ve written for the Daily Nexus. What was your proudest piece for them? One of my favorite pieces was a feature on the I.V. Rec and Park District, which highlighted their recent efforts to revitalize a healthy and active community. I loved working on this story because the parks are something which I think the residents really take for granted, especially after speaking with IVRPD and learning about how much work goes on behind the scenes to put on these events. It’s one of the first pieces that really made me feel connected to my community here.

FOOD & DRINK .. . . . . . . . . . . . 32

What’s your dream job after you graduate? I hope to be a writing teacher. It makes me sad to hear when someone calls themselves a “bad writer,” because I truly believe everyone has the potential to develop the skill — it’s just the way education has framed writing as something to be evaluated rather than experienced. I love writing so much, and it has had such a positive impact on my life just through the community I’ve found in the field, so I wish to foster similar experiences for future generations.

Avanzando LGBTQ+ la Igualdad en la Costa Central

Moving LGBTQ+ Equality Forward on the Central Coast

Como líderes y personas de fe, nuestras tradiciones afirman inequívoca y ferozmente que las personas LGBTQ+ son una parte sagrada y amada de la familia humana. Lamentamos cómo la religión se usa para justificar la discriminación. La libertad de practicar nuestra religión jamás nos da el derecho de dañar a otros o de imponer nuestras creencias. Hoy, las personas LGBTQ+, nuestros vecinos, familia, amigos, congregantes, o nosotros mismos - estamos en riesgo de ser despedidos, rechazados de alojamiento, denegados de servicios, perseguidos de un baño, atacados verbal o físicamente, o excluidos de la atención médica crítica debido a quienes somos o a quienes amamos. Desafortunadamente, a medida que nos acercamos a las elecciones intermedias, predecimos que habrá más reformas anti-LGBTQ+, retórica, y mentiras promovidas por políticos, desde las elecciones locales para la mesa directiva escolar hasta las elecciones nacionales. Responderemos oponiéndose a estas leyes insidiosas y denunciando esta retórica dañina en nuestra comunidad. Haremos todo lo posible para mitigar el daño causado a las personas LGBTQ+. A nuestros seres queridos LGBTQ+: PFLAG y líderes religiosos afirmativos están con ustedes en la lucha. Celebramos y afirmamos su pertenencia a nuestras comunidades de fe. Estamos listos para luchar por un mundo en el que cada persona sea valorada, segura y próspera. En la fe y la solidaridad,

As faith leaders and people of faith, our traditions unequivocally and fiercely affirm that LGBTQ+ people are a sacred and beloved part of the human family. We lament how religion is used to justify discrimination. Freedom of religion never gives us the right to harm others or impose our beliefs on them. Today, LGBTQ+ people—our neighbors, family, friends, fellow congregants, or we ourselves—are at risk of being fired, refused housing, denied service, chased from a bathroom, verbally or physically attacked, or barred from critical medical care because of who they are or who they love. Unfortunately, as we approach the midterm elections, we predict that there will be more antiLGBTQ+ bills, rhetoric, and outright lies promoted by politicians, from local school board elections to national contests. We will respond by opposing these insidious laws and by calling out this damaging rhetoric in our community. We will do everything we can to mitigate harm caused to LGBTQ+ people. To our LGBTQ+ loved ones: PFLAG and affirming faith leaders are with you in the struggle. We celebrate and affirm your belonging in our faith communities. We are ready to fight for a world in which every person is valued, safe, and thriving. In faith and solidarity,

Santa Barbara City Attorney Ariel Calonne (pictured) was placed on paid administrative leave by the City Council at a special meeting last month. Neither Calonne, who was hired in 2014, nor anyone from City Hall would discuss details, stating it was a personnel matter. In Calonne’s absence, Assistant City Attorney Sarah Knecht will function as City Attorney. No official information has been provided as to what precipitated the action, but Noozhawk reported it arose out of an especially heated hallway exchange between Calonne and a fellow attorney. The City Attorney is one of two positions over which the City Council — and not the City Administrator — has direct hiring and firing authority. C EAR NAL COLLECTIVE

The city’s Planning Commission last week approved the Development Plan for the Santa Barbara Police Department’s new three-story, $92 million headquarters. Planning commissioners left comments suggesting small tweaks to the building’s tower structure to better match the downtown Santa Barbara aesthetic and asking if more solar panels could be added to improve the project’s overall environmental impact. Previously, the city’s Architectural Board of Review (ABR) requested fewer solar panels for a cleaner look. The project is expected to go through another ABR review for final design approval, though an official date has not yet been set. Santa Barbarans may need to add a few minutes to their drive if their destination is anywhere in town, as street detours are popping up everywhere unexpectedly. The summer is the best time to roll asphalt onto the streets after they’ve been repaired, said Jim Dewey, who manages street operations and infrastructure for the city. He went on to explain that any concrete work to fix uplifted sidewalks and add curb ramps needed to be done ahead of road repairs. That’s why so many intersections in a row and side streets have been full of trucks, jackhammers, and road workers.

The major climate, health, and tax bill will raise $737 billion from taxes and prescription drug cost savings and spend $437 billion on climate change and energy measures, healthcare subsidies, and drought resiliency for western states.

Governor Gavin Newsom proposed measures to extend the licensed lifespan of Diablo Canyon Power Plant in Avila Beach by up to 10 years in response, he said, to the threat of climate-changeinduced power outages. Without this extension, the licenses for the twin reactors of the nuclearpowered plant are set to expire in 2024 and 2025, respectively. In addition, Newsom is proposing the State Legislature loan PG&E $1.4 billion from the state’s general fund to underwrite the utility’s costs of license renewal. The measure proposed by Newsom would also suspend the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act. Full story at independent.com/newsom-diablo-plan.

Hundreds of mourners attended a remembrance ceremony on 8/13 for Ventura County Supervisor Carmen Ramirez (pictured), 73, who was struck and killed by a truck on 8/12 while walking across a street in downtown Oxnard. An attorney, outspoken environmentalist, and former boardmember of Santa Barbara’s Environmental Defense Center, Ramirez was a member of the Oxnard City Council for 10 years before her election to District 5 county supervisor in 2020. Police investigator Andrew Pinkstaff said officers were collecting witness statements and video from nearby businesses to get details of the tragedy but treating the incident as “a true accident,” adding that “the driver was not arrested.”

A family cat did not survive a house fire in Old Town Goleta on 8/15, according to County Fire. All five occupants of the home were not present at the time of the fire, which was reported at 10:52 in the morning, according to County Fire spokesperson Mike Eliason. The flames in the singlestory house on the 5700 block of Gato Avenue was knocked down about 10 minutes after fire crews arrived, and the house received smoke damage throughout. The cause of the fire is still currently under investigation. A collision early 8/15 on the corner of De la Vina and West Carrillo streets resulted in one person being transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. A sedan and pickup truck collided at around 4:30 a.m. The intersection was partially closed while first responders were on scene, with the road opening back up shortly afterward. The Santa Barbara Police Department has not provided any additional details on the incident.

UC Santa Barbara police lieutenant was arrested August 7 in Solvang on charges of driving under the influence and hit-and-run. Bradley Prows, 60, who was not on duty at the time, was headed westbound on Highway 246 near the Solvang Brewing Company when the car in front of him slowed as it prepared to park, according to a report from the California Highway Patrol (CHP). Prows attempted to pass, but the right side of his truck collided with the left side of the other vehicle as he did so. Prows failed to stop and kept driving, said the CHP, while the other vehicle followed and tried to flag him down. After about a mile, Prows pulled over, and he was soon after contacted by officers. No one was injured in the collision. CHP spokesperson Officer Michael Griffith said he could not disclose Prows’s blood-alcohol content, “but I can tell you he was over the legal limit.”

Prior to joining the UCSB Police Department in 2013, Prows was employed by the CHP for 32 years. His wife, who was with him at the time of the collision, is currently an office manager at its Buellton headquarters. UCSB spokesperson Kiki Reyes said the university is cooperating with the CHP and that Prows has been placed on administrative leave. The incident comes shortly after UCSB Chancellor Henry Yang was accused of hit-and-run for allegedly striking a skateboarder on campus with his car and leaving the scene. However, the CHP, which led the investigation, declined to charge Yang, citing a lack of evidence and corroborating witnesses. Records ultimately showed that Yang had refused to cooperate with investigators, despite an initial claim by the university that he had done so “professionally and appropriately.” —Tyler Hayden

EDUCATION

Goleta United Boys & Girls Club Declines to Host Lozano’s Pod School

A

proposal by Christy Lozano and James Fenkner to place a private school charging $100 a day on the grounds of the United Boys & Girls Club in Goleta was determined to be “not a good fit” for the nonprofit, director Michael Baker said today in a press release. The club’s executive committee had met today to consider the proposal, as it “supports all schools and organizations that provide educational opportunities and enrichment for youth in our community,” he wrote. Instead of sharing classroom space and the facility, Baker said the club would focus on after school and weekend activities and classes for underserved youth in the community. The idea had initially come from Christy Lozano, who had spoken with Baker about the idea and then sent a press release indicating the incipient school would be holding a meeting at the club. It would be a K-12 school, based on pods of 12 children in size. Baker immediately stated it was up to the executive committee, not him, to decide on new programs at the club.

Lozano had run a campaign rife with controversy for county superintendent of schools, after she criticized the Santa Barbara Unified School District’s training for teachers to recognize racism and more broadly understand different sexualities on a Fox News program. Lozano conflated the teacher trainings with what children, including young children, were taught, according to the school district. During the campaign for superintendent, Lozano refused to sign on to League of Women Voter rules against criticizing opponents, and her debate with incumbent Susan Salcido, who won the post in June’s election, was never held. This week, Lozano announced she is running for a seat on the Goleta Union School District Board of Education. Joining Lozano in the “Honest Education Learning Project LLC” was James Fenkner, another critic of the Santa Barbara school district and a supporter of the United Boys & Girls Club car rally fundraisers. Neither responded immediately to a request for comment or information on next steps for —Jean Yamamura the school.

Construction on the last few miles of widening—through Montecito and Santa Barbara—is tentatively scheduled to begin in summer 2023, once state funding is secured. Meanwhile, parallel work on the new Olive Mill and Los Patos/Cabrillo roundabouts will start in the fall of 2022 and early 2023, respectively.

EDUCATION

Santa Barbara Zoo’s Early Explorers Preschool has received its official license from the state to become the first licensed outdoor preschool in California. The Early Explorers program was expanded from the existing Outdoor Education program in 2020 to become an outdoor preschool for children ages 3-5, which focused on teaching through outdoor play and hands-on experiences in classes with a 6:1 studentteacher ratio. Registration is now open for preschool at the zoo, and participants must be Santa Barbara Zoo members to enroll. Starting this school year, California will be the first state in the U.S. to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students through its Universal Meals program. Under the new law signed in by Governor Gavin Newsom, public schools, county offices of education, and charter schools serving students from kindergarten to 12th grade must provide breakfast and lunch during each school day to students needing a meal, regardless of the student’s free or reduced-price meal eligibility. The law will also allocate $150 million to support kitchen infrastructure upgrades, and staff training regarding nutrition for districts preparing to implement the Universal Meals program. 10

Councilmember Meagan Harmon asked about the narrowed lanes and potential safety issues created by the highway work. A representative of Caltrans, which is leading the project in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments, said recent statistics provided by the California Highway Patrol have not shown an uptick in collisions. He did note, however, that drivers really ought to slow down in construction zones. “When we say 55, we mean it,” he said. —Tyler Hayden

REAL ESTATE Santa Barbara–based StonePark Capital — a hospitality development company founded and run by Andrew Firestone and Jess Parker — announced 8/16 that the company had acquired the 31-room Waterman Hotel in the Funk Zone for an undisclosed amount. With the acquisition, the hotel will complete the transition to join Moxy Hotels as part of the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio. The transition process is expected to be complete by summer 2023, after StonePark completes “upgrades to the common areas and guest rooms.” The hotel will remain open during this time.

DEFENSE An unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile launched just after midnight from Vandenberg Space Force Base on 8/16. The purpose of the ICBM test launch program is to validate and verify the safety, security, effectiveness, and readiness of the weapon system. However, during significant conflicts between major countries, such tests are delayed to avoid causing further aggression. Two Minuteman III missile tests have been delayed for such reasons in 2022. The first delay was when Russia invaded Ukraine earlier this year, and the second was in early August after conflict began between China and Taiwan.

ELECTION 2022

Six File for Goleta School Board

S

ix candidates have filed or announced their intentions to run for positions on the Goleta Union School District School Board in the upcoming November election, with one potentially running unopposed. Ethan Bertrand, running for Trustee Area Five, which includes Isla Vista and the entire coastline spanning to El Capitan Beach, is the only candidate for the school board currently running unopposed. If no other candidates file for the positions, he will likely be appointed in lieu of an election. Bertrand has served as director of the Isla Vista Community Services District (IVCSD) since the November 2016 election and has also worked for the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors since 2019. For Trustee Area One, which covers everything above Highway 101 spanning from Painted Cave Road to El Capitan Beach, including Dos Pueblos High School and Cathedral Oaks Road, incumbent Richard Mayer will take on Caroline Abate, a conservative elementary school teacher. Abate previously ran for Goleta School Board in 2020, telling the Independent that she wanted to “bring conservative balance” to the school board. She was critical of the decision to close schools during the COVID-19 pandemic and has also openly ridiculed requirements for students

to receive comprehensive sexual health education. Three candidates have filed for the Trustee Area Three seat, which includes Old Town Goleta, the UC Santa Barbara Campus, and the area north of Highway 101 between Fairview Avenue and Patterson Road: Emily Zacarias, a teacher from Santa Barbara; Bert Haley, a Goleta business owner; and Christy Lozano, a physical education teacher who ran earlier this year for Superintendent of Schools but was not able to oust incumbent Susan Salcido. Lozano has been an outspoken critic of the district, most infamously when she appeared on Laura Ingraham’s show on Fox News in January 2022. During the program, she claimed that district-provided resources for teachers regarding race and sexuality were part of the curriculum being taught to young children, a claim the district denied. Following her failed bid for superintendent, Lozano’s more recent efforts to open a “pod” school at Goleta United Boys & Girls Club hit a snag earlier this month when a meeting to discuss opening the school at the club was postponed “due to a number of complaints by unnamed sources.” The club’s executive board voted this Tuesday to not allow the private school to open at the club. —Jun Starkey

Dawn of a New Dog

REV YOUR ENGINES: It used to be “a gentleman” was defined as someone who could play the accordion but didn’t. As someone with

wannabe aspirations of accordionhood — an instrument central to so many of the world’s greatest musics — I never got the joke. But based on the emotions expressed at this week’s kick-off session of 17 big-brain thought-leaders assembling under the rubric of the State Street Advisory Committee, the punchline has clearly changed. Today, it’s all about people who ride e-bikes. The shift was striking. For the first time in my life, there was way more vexation and vituperation expressed at e-bike riders, especially the swarms of barely pubescent Mesa bRats who regularly dive-bomb their way down State Street — baby strollers and dogs be damned — than about homeless people. I didn’t know that was even possible. The Mesa bRats, who ride something that’s a cross between a mini-bike and a lawn mower, were so reviled that even the Teenage Wheelie Poppers — last year’s alleged assault on Santa Barbara’s domestic tranquility — got more love. In fact, the chair of the committee, Dave Davis, praised them: “I even like kids doing wheelies on State Street,” Davis exclaimed. They were a sign of life, he said before proclaiming how State Street can thrum again with a sense of “place, history, and celebration.” But the e-bikers barreling down State Street at 30 miles an hour, he said, absolutely had to go.

When Davis talks, people tend to listen. For those tuning in late, for about 25 years, he functioned as chief planner, community development director, and urban visionary for the City of Santa Barbara. Since then, he’s evolved into part Wizard of Oz, part Yoda, wearing more hats during his ridiculously busy retirement than any haberdashery could hope to supply. Davis and the committee crew are hoping to lead the entire community on a collective vision quest — please, bring your own psilocybin — about the future of State Street. They want people to dream the Impossible Dream when it comes to what we want downtown to look like. Beginning in October, consultants hired by City Hall will attempt to draw you into this conversation. You will know them by the 10 multicolored magic markers and the industrial-sized reams of butcher paper they carry everywhere. This is not about rearranging the street furniture on Street Street — which most people on the committee admit has gotten “shabby” — so much as reengineering the DNA of downtown. It is time to stretch our brains. In his introductory remarks, Davis exhumed the ghost of Pearl Chase, Santa Barbara’s civic equivalent of George Washington with a little J. Edgar Hoover and LBJ thrown in should arms need to be twisted and ears bent. Chase is widely over-credited with singlehandedly transforming our downtown into the red-tiled-roof wonder it became after the 1925

earthquake. “This is our community’s Pearl Chase moment,” Davis preached. The Paseo Nuevo mall — which Davis had a big hand in — ain’t working anymore. The whole idea of downtown as the central business district, he said, had grown obsolete. Downtown needed to be radically reimagined to meet new economic realities that are still sorting themselves out. How this committee gels has yet to be seen. When asked what it wanted to see, members said, “Housing, housing, housing,” “Art, art, art,” and “People, people, people.” More specifically: festivals, murals, art, outdoor wine tasting, outdoor tequila tasting, outdoor cooking classes, anything that could be called outdoor anything, and anything that could be called “experiential.” More practically and prosaically, it involved a new and improved collection of stormwater runoff and luring more schools — like Cal State Northridge and UCSB — downtown. Marge Cafarelli, who developed downtown’s Public Market and Alma Del Pueblo condos, made it clear she will not be tinkering around the edges. Just knock down the Paseo Nuevo mall, she said. It’s grown obsolete. Time to start over. It was interesting she’d say that. Cafarelli has a tendency to say what more careful people are thinking. The owners of Paseo Nuevo, by the way, just defaulted on the $121 million loan they took out in February 2019, leaving their lenders holding a huge bag of crap. Whether this

is an impediment or opportunity for the new committee has yet to be seen. Either way, it’s a very big wrinkle. Coincidentally, major plans are now underway to transform much of La Cumbre Plaza into housing. The number “1,900 units” gets thrown around. All that sounds like a pipe dream, but when you have developers like John Price and Jim Taylor involved, their smoke looks a lot like fire. Mayor Randy Rowse — who attended the meeting as an observer — has displayed a conspicuous lack of enthusiasm for the process, and especially for the $720,000 City Hall is spending on the consultants. Rowse wants to bring cars back to State Street and is much more focused on short-term fixes than grand plans that he not-so-privately suspects will go nowhere. Davis delivered a back-of-the-hand salute to the mayor for missing his Pearl Chase moment. Short-term fixes should not be confused with long-term dreams, Davis said, and the mayor was sowing such confusion. A small point: Back in 1925 when the earthquake hit, Pearl Chase and her crew already had concocted their red-tiled visions for Santa Barbara. Here, it’s the reverse. Downtown has already experienced its economic earthquakes — Amazon, the Funk Zone, La Cumbre, Goleta, and the pandemic. But we still have no clear mission. We need to conjure one. Now’s the time. Me, I’d bring Pearl Chase back from the dead. I’d strap an accordion around her neck, too. What we don’t need now are gentlemen. No one ever accused Pearl of being one of those. —Nick Welsh

uring the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump and the GOP were enraged at Hillary Clinton’s handling of potentially classified material as Secretary of State. A congressional investigation was established to get to the bottom of this alleged scandal. When several Clinton aides pleaded the Fifth Amendment, Donald Trump said, “The mob takes the Fifth Amendment. If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?” Since 81.2 million voters removed Trump’s rear end from the White House, he and his henchmen have been singing a different tune. Eric Trump, John Eastman, Roger Stone, Alex Jones, Jeffrey Clark, and Michael Flynn have each pleaded the Fifth Amendment more than 100 times. On August 10, at a four-hour sworn deposition in a New York civil case regarding the Trump Organization’s business practices, Trump “took the Fifth” more than 400 times. Some say that Donald Trump is the most corrupt president since Warren G. Harding. That is (as he would say) “so unfair.” In reality, compared to Trump, Warren G. Harding is like Mother Teresa. As far as the handling of potentially classified material, let’s see what’s in those 15 boxes (some clearly marked “Classified”) that Donald Trump illegally transported to Mar-a-Lago. The FBI’s search warrant was legally obtained and legally executed. How will the Fox puppeteers and their MAGA marionettes justify Trump’s clear breach of national security? —Robert Baruch, Yeosu, South Korea, (formerly of Goleta, CA)

s America still a Republic? Do we still have freedom of speech, the rule of law and free elections? Is the Biden administration weaponizing the FBI, the IRS, and the DOJ against anyone who disagrees with them? Case in point: The recent raid on Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach. Did Trump have files that would implicate the FBI (Crossfire Hurricane)? And what about the expansion of 87,000 new IRS agents? Will they target and persecute political opponents? Finally, what kind of country has America become when a person running for president is targeted, persecuted, and slandered year after year? Never mind that he wanted to put America first, clean up the swamp, and reestablish America’s standing in the world. Take note, America. The Biden administration hates what a free Republic stands for. And the raid

in Palm Beach was the worst attack on our Republic in modern times. As Mark Levin said, “It was a direct assault on liberty, history, decorum, normalcy, and democracy.” —Diana Thorn, Carpinteria

In Praise of Maldonado

L

eaders of color, especially BIPOC women, are commonly treated with disdain. Their leadership is often subject to questioning from conservatives. As a community organizer, I have witnessed these condescending remarks and the lack of understanding toward a leader of color. Perhaps these criticisms stem from external motives other than legitimate professional issues or concerns. Is this “constructive feedback” or plain obstruction? From the moment Superintendent Hilda Maldonado arrived at SBUSD, she was met with hostility. Despite being a new superintendent during an unprecedented global pandemic, she was ridiculed for not visiting campuses while there were stay-athome orders. Many of the concerns pertaining to COVID-19 also made her the scapegoat for mask mandates, hybrid learning, vaccine mandates, and tough teaching conditions. Superintendent Maldonado has placed the idea of equity at the forefront of education in Santa Barbara. This aligns with the mission and values of our youth, as our student leaders have advocated for an “A-G for All” policy — which satisfy course requirements for entry to the UCs — more diverse staff, additional support services (tutoring/counseling), a pipeline for low-income youth to four-year university, and meaningful parental engagement within SBUSD. Maldonado took initiative to meet with students to hear their concerns and actually work to implement these equity initiatives. Maldonado has worked continuously to ensure a college-going culture among Santa Barbara youth. I admire the work that she has done and her commitment toward promoting equitable educa—Alyssa Cazares, S.B. tion in Santa Barbara.

obituaries Wilbur (Spike) Antone Gunderson 4/20/1944 - 6/20/2022

Spike’s signature smile, infectious laugh and wingspanned gestures will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Spike was born in Portland Oregon. His parents, Wilbur Antone Sr. and Violet Marie Gunderson were native Portlanders, and proud of that fact. Wilbur – who was given the playful nickname “Spike” at the age of four by his father, lived up to every letter of it in his character – he was the younger of their two boys. In early 1948, Spike’s parents were encouraged by the children’s physician to move their boys to a warmer climate and planned their trek down the West coast. They were pleased to discover Santa Barbara, a small & quiet town, but a culturally rich beach town steeped in history. Before the year’s end, they had made it their home. Spike attended Harding Elementary School and La Cumbre Junior High, then graduated from Santa Barbara High in 1962. Growing up in Santa Barbara offered latitude of its own kind to Spike and his friends. A childhood that leaves many stories reminiscent of Tom Sawyer, and to this day, told best by those brothers and sisters who shared it with him. Growing up a Westside kid, put Spike and his friends in closer proximity to Hendry’s and Ledbetter Beach. Piling into Violet’s Corvair with a friend or two, she’d shuttle them to the beach for the afternoon. During Spike’s adolescence, his introduction to surfing lit a spark inside him, and immediately the ol’ canvas rafts gave way to this new sport. Surfing offered him solace at a time when his father, Wilbur Sr., passed from a short illness at the age of 44. Spike was only 17 at this time and losing his father had a profound effect on him. Throughout his life, Spike talked glowingly of the memories and wisdoms in those years they shared together. Soon after high school graduation, he left with a friend to sail the Bahamas for six months. Spike and his buddy had their fill of lobster to the point where neither feasted on another one for 14

To submit obituaries for publication, please call (805) 965-5205 or email obits@independent.com many years. Upon his return to SB, he started an apprenticeship trades program for sheet metal at SB City College. He married his first wife, Linda Bowman, in 1965. Within several years they were happily raising their two daughters, Staci and Jenny. The Channel Islands kept adventure alive for Spike. Early 1977, he partnered with a good friend to have a 24ft Radon built and they named her the “Escape”. Weather permitting, the Channel Islands became their weekend entertainment to dive, fish and fish some more. Many ocean tales from those years are fondly remembered. While Spike gained experience in his trade, so did his thirst to grow in it. He worked for R.P. Richards into the early 80’s while starting the licensing process to become a general contractor. By 1983, the family owned business, Channel Islands Construction was founded. His niche and a long successful career began and continued till 2017. Spike was always known to be ethical, loyal and a man of his word. Golf was another life long activity that he loved. He played weekly with childhood friends at local courses. Spike recorded a hole in one on #6 at Sandpiper GC at the age of 75! He accomplished this while challenged with advancing dementia. His spirit for the game and competition never wavered. Spike shared 28 devoted years with his second wife, Susie. They were married in 2003 in the Hawaiian islands encircled by family. Throughout their years together, outdoor adventures from the top of the Pacific NW down to the beautiful Sea of Cortez in Baja Sur created heartfelt memories. Spike would be the first to share what a wonderful life he lived. His huge, warm smile that accompanied his sharp sense of humor is remembered by all who knew him. Spike adored his family, his friends and especially his wife Susie. The level of love, support, compassion and comfort she provided him was life long and never more evident than during his latter stage of illness. Susie was honored to be by Spike’s side when he passed peacefully. A Celebration of Life will be held on October 8th at Tuckers Grove, Area 5, from noon till 4pm. Please RSVP to SpikeAG77@ gmail.com

The sister I’ve always been so proud of passed away suddenly on July 18, 2022 of cardiac arrest. She was loved by Santa Barbara residents as a teacher to their children and mentor to many, including me. No matter what the problem, death, grief, relationships, Lee would light a certain color of candle to help someone through. She studied and knew all she could learn about children’s brains applying the knowledge to her teaching. Children were always on her mind. A long time and devoted educator, her giving heart just gave out. She was born to the late Shirley and B.K. Pennington in San Francisco, CA. She was the sister to the late Richard Pennington and her surviving sister, Cheryl Lynn Curnutt in Morro Bay. Lee received her MEd from Oregon State University and her PhD from UCSB. She was an advocate of Jean Ayres Sensory Integration International. She worked tirelessly with students, parents and peers. She kept in touch with many of them as they have succeeded in their adult lives. She also gave to any cause to help those less fortunate. She made long lasting relationships with those students, parents and peers. Lee was generous to a fault, adored children and animals, and was an advocate for those she deemed in need. A celebration of her life is being planned for the Fall.

Judie enjoyed a very loving and happy life with her best friend/ husband Joe. They lived in Santa Barbara for many years before retiring to Oregon, and then on to Hemet CA where Judie passed away in their home sweet home, with her beloved Joe by her side. They were married for over 32 years and Joe still talks to his Judie everyday, the love of his life. A memorial for Judie will be held at Goleta Beach, Aug.20 at 11am.

obituaries Robert Ryan Baptista 4/7/1972 - 8/9/2022

Our family and our community lost a shining light on August 9, 2022, with the passing of Robert Ryan Baptista. Rob was born in San Francisco, Calif. on April 7, 1972, to Kathy and Robert Baptista. The third of seven brothers, Rob grew up in Santa Barbara and attended Foothill Elementary, La Colina Junior High and graduated from San Marcos High School in 1990 where he was a standout athlete on the wrestling mat and the football field. Rob spent the better part of his 20s in Boulder, Colo., where he built Brother’s Boards and introduced a generation to the pleasure and peril of skateboarding. Known for his unparalleled athleticism in youth, he later took up more sedate pursuits such as yoga and golf. Rob began his career in construction in 1996 and in 2004 founded RRB Construction in Santa Barbara as a General Contractor. He spent the last two decades building and renovating homes throughout Santa Barbara and fostered a highly respected following of clients and fellow contractors as well as developing and mentoring a strong family of employees. To Rob’s family he was a father, a brother, a son, a friend and a mentor. He took on and relished in the role of the patriarch of the Baptista clan and all of their extended family. Rob honored his mother and often credited her for instilling in him his strength, love of family and respect for others. He was a loyal brother and a guiding light in his large family. Rob was a dedicated father to his daughter, Arianna, and a father-figure to his eight nieces and nephews. He joyfully played Santa Claus at Christmas and traveled to London to celebrate Arianna’s graduation. He devoted time to support their academics, coach youth sports and enjoy activities while sharing in successes and milestones throughout their childhood and into adulthood. Rob fostered support and belonging throughout his family and celebrated their hopes and dreams as if they were his own. With his inherent generosity he was a champion for the wellbeing of his family, friends and employees alike.

Rob’s friends remember him as a massive presence full of light, love and authenticity. He was a unique soul who had a strong demeanor combined with empathy and kindness. Rob was the guy who, even after not seeing him for months (or years), would make you feel like you had just seen him yesterday. If Rob was your friend, Rob was your family – and he treated you and your children as his own. His friends of 50 years or of 2 years reveled in his adventurous spirit and respected his vulnerability. Times of friendship with Rob were full of his quick wit, contagious laugh and his million-dollar smile. A consummate professional, Rob’s clients echo similar themes of not only his unrivaled professional skills, but also of his energy, enthusiasm, respect and integrity. Countless clients have come to consider Rob as not just their contractor but as part of their family. It is not uncommon to see Rob enjoying family dinner or a birthday celebration in a kitchen he built years before. Rob also built a crew that was like family – each and every one of them imbued with his culture of respect, integrity and professionalism. Rob is survived by his mother, Kathy, and his brothers Shane, Adam, Josh, Brennen and Sam; his daughter Arianna and ex-wife Afshan; sisters-in-law: Stacy, Marianne and Mari; his nieces and nephews: Shawn, Jacob, Max, Jaden, Tehya, Soren, Settee and Rigel; numerous cousins and a large extended family. He is predeceased by his father, Bob, and his brother, Richard. Rob’s light was genuine. He drew people together. His smile lit up a room and made you feel at ease. He was a great hugger and made you feel like he was hugging with all of his being. He was strong and brave while being vulnerable and empathetic. He had the carefree and adventurous spirit of a child and the honor and integrity of a man. He had a heart as big as his personality and a laugh as uplifting as his attitude. He was a champion for others’ hopes and dreams. Everything felt possible with Rob around. He was empathetic, vulnerable and honest. Rob put people at ease; strangers became friends in an instant. Robert Ryan Baptista will be missed by many and forgotten by none. His passing changes all of our futures, and we are changed for having known and loved him. The light he brought into our lives will forever burn in our hearts. In lieu of flowers, if you would like to honor Rob, the family would welcome donations to any of the local high school wrestling programs in his name. The best

way is via check written directly to the high school wrestling program. Additionally, please be like Rob and be the light, the love and champion that he was to all of your friends, family and those around you.

Marilyn Barr-Lyell 1950 - 2022

Marilyn Lyell lived a bountiful and joyful and non-stop life that began in Santa Barbara, California in 1950 and ended at her home in Portsmouth, Rhode Island on July 24. For the last 42 years, she lovingly shared her life with her husband Chandler Lyell, and they were joined along the way by their sons Andrew and Slader, and later by their sons’ respective wives and kids, Grace & Cooper, and Omeche & Elijah, all of whom she loved unconditionally. While time was short from her diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma in March, Marilyn was filled with gratitude and humility that her life was so full of good fortune. She had and nurtured so many friends, all of whom will miss her greatly. Almost all of her time was enthusiastically spent in the present, mostly playing sports and games, and walking and talking and traveling with family and friends. Her family is so sad with her passing, but they too appreciate their good fortune, to have been able to share so much of their lives with such a unique and happy mother and wife and friend. Her family appreciates the kindnesses of those who helped Marilyn during her illness, people too numerous to mention, people who have a special and unusual capacity for compassion and empathy. A life celebration will be planned at a future date, and folks will need to come armed with a silly poem or haiku. Those so-moved can make a donation to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society or American Cancer Society so that cures can soon be found.

PeriPheral Neuropathy aNd diabetes WarNiNG! Santa Barbara, CA - Diabetes along with age, smoking, exposure to chemotherapy, post surgical and motor vehicle accidents are all risk factors for peripheral neuropathy. Diabetes is the largest cohort, making up nearly 60% of all peripheral neuropathy cases. Among diabetics, up to 50% have measurable evidence of peripheral neuropathy but no symptoms. Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy is the most common long term complication of Diabetes. This can progress from sensory complications to leg/foot ulcers and ultimately gangrene and amputation. Nerve fibers affected with neuropathy include large nerve fibers which are principally associated with numbness and small nerve fibers seen with pain and burning symptoms.

In order to effectively treat your neuropathy, three factors must be determined. 1. What is the underlying cause? 2. How much nerve damage has been sustained?* 3. How much treatment will your condition require? Don’t Hesitate to Act Now! We can objectively measure the severity of deficit in both small and large nerve fibers prior to start of care.

The main problem is that your doctor has told you to just live with the problem or try the drugs which you don’t like taking because they make you feel uncomfortable. There is now a facility right here in Santa Barbara that offers you new hope without taking those endless drugs with serious side effects. (see the special neuropathy severity consultation at the end of this article).

Nearly 60% of Peripheral Neuropahty patients are Diabetics. ref: The foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy. June 2018

Peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves often causing weakness, pain, numbness, tingling, and the most debilitating balance problems.

The treatment to increase blood flow utilizes electronic cell signaling delivering modulating energy wavelengths at both low and middle frequencies. The signaling improves cell-to-cell communication among small nerve fibers.

This damage is commonly caused by a lack of blood flow to the nerves in the hands and feet which will cause the nerves to begin to slowly degenerate due to lack of nutrient flow.

The cell signaling therapy is like watering a tree. The treatment will allow the blood vessels to grow back around the peripheral nerves and provide them with the proper nutrients to heal and repair. It’s like adding water to a tree and seeing the roots grow deeper and deeper.

As you can see in Figure 1, as the blood vessels that surround the nerves become diseased they shrivel up which causes the nerves to not receive the nutrients to continue to survive. When these nerves begin to “die” they cause you to have balance problems, pain, numbness, tingling, burning, and many additional symptoms.

The amount of treatment needed to allow the nerves to fully recover varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation. Large nerve fiber = numbness • Small nerve fiber = pain

Sentenced to a Russian Prison Camp for Medical Marijuana Possession

I

BY DR. BEN JOHNSON am not writing this opinion piece today to

address a Santa Barbara issue but instead to raise awareness of an American issue, one that is extremely personal to me. One of my teachers, Marc Fogel, who taught me at the International School of Kuala Lumpur, has been detained in Russia for a year now and currently awaits transfer to a maximum-security penal colony and labor camp for attempting to bring 14 medical marijuana vape cartridges into Russia last summer. If his story sounds familiar, it’s because he was Brittney Griner before her story exploded. And his story, up until the last two weeks, was almost entirely unknown to the American public. That is partially by design. His family was told by the State Department to keep a low profile. “We are working on his behalf. Let the process work.” Unfortunately for my old teacher, the process didn’t work. The State Department, while remaining mum on his case, has very publicly discussed that they are negotiating for the release of Paul Whelan and Brittney Griner (as they should, in my opinion — though I understand it’s a complex issue and that there is a counterargument based on encouraging a market for hostage taking) but has not included Marc Fogel in any of these announcements. Despite my best attempts to understand why, both in poring through articles and briefings and in speaking with his family, it is not at all clear on what basis he is being excluded. All questions from journalists regarding his case have consistently been met with some form of the generic answer, “We can’t comment because of privacy issues.” I’d like to tell a story about Mr. Fogel so that when you hear his name, you think about the person he is and not the crime that he is being held for. When I was 12, my new stepfather got a job in Malaysia and we abruptly moved from Pittsburgh to Kuala Lumpur. At the time I’d been in

Marc Fogel with his wife, Jane, and their two sons and dog

four total states, all on the East Coast, so we near well had moved to Mars. I was a lanky and awkward 12-year-old with a funny accent. The move did not go well. It was 1994 and before the internet had really become mainstream, so I had very little connection to home except for expensive longdistance phone calls. I’d go to school and get bullied incessantly, until I heard about a high school teacher who was also from Pittsburgh named Marc Fogel. One of my middle-school teachers saw I was struggling and sent me over to the high school to meet him. I walked into his classroom, and he greeted me with the largest smile. His accent was familiar and sounded much like mine. “So you like the Steelers?” he asked. Over the next year, I’d sneak over to his classroom at breaks. We’d pore through old sports pages from the Post Gazette that his family had sent him. We got excited when the Steelers drafted this novel dual-threat QB they called “Slash.” He taught me how to remember home all while finding a place in a new home. He taught me to be a world citizen. I didn’t realize until many years later how special what he did for me was. After college, I became a high school teacher myself. As a young educator, I quickly learned that prep periods and breaks between classes were critical to maintaining sanity. The last thing I ever wanted (or could handle) was having students fill up that time. But not Mr. Fogel. He saw a kid struggling and knew just want to do, student-free personal time be damned. I have since left teaching and become a physician. To be a special teacher is so much harder than doctoring. I wasn’t cut out for it. Marc Fogel was. He saved me at a time in my life when I was most vulnerable. So now I’m doing everything in my power to save his. If anyone who happens to n read this can help, now is the time.

mir Putin launched his “special military operation” against Ukraine, NATO countries pondered how hard to push back without triggering nuclear escalation. Fast-forward to the present and the United Nations is now expressing “grave concern” that Ukraine’s largest nuclear power plant — also the biggest in Europe — has become engulfed in hostilities. Last Saturday, one of the six reactors was shelled. On the same day, a dry-cask storage unit was also hit. Both sides, naturally, have blamed the other. That’s perhaps the most inflammatory development in the past week for a military conflict that shows no sign of letting up. Russia continues to hold roughly 20 percent of the Ukrainian land mass, mostly along eastern region where many ethnic Russians live. But Ukraine, now armed with advanced missile systems from the west, has managed to blow up eight Russian warplanes, one

therapist at Cottage Hospital, has made annual pilgrimages to a retreat center in northwest Ukraine that serves people with disabilities. Set among old trees and wide fields, it’s a respite of free lodging, food, and medical care for those who need the extra support. “It’s a beautiful little place,” she said. Tupchyk always arrives with boxes of supplies—braces, prosthetics, and other medical equipment—and readily volunteers herself to the country where she was born and spent the early years of her childhood. This June, she paid yet another visit. “This was a very different trip,” she said. While she utilized the retreat center as a home base, Tupchyk spent most of her three weeks in Ukraine embarked on a listening tour. “The goal was to assess the needs of people with disabilities,” she explained. “The needs that existed prior to the war and of those who have been newly injured.” Tupchyk visited 17 cities and towns and nine hospitals, speaking with doctors, nurses, NGO directors, local occupational therapists, and others. In the early days of the war, patients were concentrated in the eastern part of the country, where fighting was the heaviest. “Now they’re being shipped all over the country,” said Tupchyk. A common thread quickly became clear. “They’re overwhelmed,” Tupchyk said of the constant arrival of patients with missing limbs and other disabling injuries. “These places are bursting at the seams.” Hospitals and clinics simply don’t have enough beds to meet demand, and key pieces of equipment, such as wound vacuums, are in critically short supply. Tupchyk is accustomed to witnessing trauma in her everyday work life, but even she was taken aback by what she saw. “So many people came in with wounds that look like a bear took a couple of bites out of them,” she said. Though often lacking in tools and sometimes even behind on modern medical knowledge, the Ukrainians were always “hungry for education and mentorship,” Tupchyk found. “It was very eyeopening.” Tupchyk was happy to oblige by teaching providers about proper wound care and how to wrap limbs with ACE bandages to accommodate prosthetics, among other techniques. She also discovered a big need for translation services, an issue she is working with a nonprofit to address. Tupchyk is now collaborating with a U.S.

Russian ammunition depot, four bridges critical to maintaining Russia’s strained supply lines, and barracks for mercenaries hired by the Putin regime. Everyone is suffering. Estimates vary—and all are suspect—but it appears that as many as 500 Russians are now being killed or wounded a day. As many as 200 Ukrainians become casualties of war with each passing day. The scope and scale of the refugee crisis remains too vast to count, but the Unites Nations estimates 12 million Ukrainians have fled their homes since the Russian invasion in February. Of those, five million reportedly have left Ukraine and seven million have relocated within its borders. Not long ago, Santa Barbara maintained Sister City ties with Yalta, one of Ukraine’s most historically significant cities. Those ties had muted with the passing of time. Even so, Santa Barbara and Santa Barbarans still find a way to reach out to Ukraine, as the following articles highlight. —Nick Welsh

RUSSIAN DESTRUCTION: Checking through the rubble

Documenting the War in Ukraine Two Documentary Filmmakers Record the Early Months of the War by Brian O’Dea Photos by Frank Vilaca rian O’Dea and Frank Vilaca were among the earliest filmmakers to begin documenting the war in Ukraine in the spring of this year. O’Dea, a writer and filmmaker, was in Santa Barbara visiting his family when the war broke out. He contacted his friend and longtime war photographer Frank Vilaca, and together they have spent months recording a documentary about the war. What follows are lightly edited excerpts from the diary O’Dea kept during the harrowing first month he and Vilaca spent traveling about the country, helping to deliver supplies, speaking with Ukrainians struggling under constant bombardment, and visiting soldiers and volunteers fighting on the front lines.

B

t wasn’t until this war in Ukraine started that Frank and I spoke again. We had first met while working together on a television show several years ago in Canada. Frank was an award-winning photographer who had documented conflicts around the world for 30 years, including the horrific war crimes in Rwanda, Bosnia, and Herzegovina for the

i

International Criminal Court. When I contacted him again, I had just returned from spending four months with my children in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. I was, as so many were and are, incredibly disturbed by the news reports coming back from the front, and I needed to speak with someone who could give me some “war perspective.” After an hour conversation on this new terror, we agreed to go to Ukraine together. A few calls later, we were able to get the financing needed for the trip. Scott Stirling, who owns Canada’s Super Channel, NTV, among other media properties, is a heart-directed guy and without hesitation said yes. His wife, Judy, told me her grandfather had fled Ukraine years ago. And Johnny, my lawyer brother, helped us get funding from the Newfoundland Film Development Corporation. So now we had the funds to make this happen, and truthfully, I was actually freaking out inside. I had to take some immediate actions that would close the exits, so buying

ting shelled on a daily basis by Putin’s war machine? Fire Captain Isaac Siegel has a very simple suggestion. “Boots,” he said during a recent interview. “We need work boots. New ones, preferably, preferably boots with steel. But boots in good condition. Boots.” By day, Siegel works as a fire captain with the Santa Barbara Fire Department. The rest of his life, however, has become pretty much consumed by being the functional equivalent of CEO for Project Joint Guardian, a new international nonprofit that’s helping Ukrainian firefighters and other first responders there deal with the mayhem and carnage that began with Russia’s attack this February and hasn’t let up since. To date, Project Joint Guardian has dispatched 21 firefighters and about 10,000 pounds of safety equipment in two separate missions to Ukraine. Another one — 10 more firefighters and as much as 15,000 more pounds of equipment — is scheduled to be sent this September, courtesy of Direct Relief. Ukrainian firefighters and first responders typically wade into the bombed-out and smoldering rubble, looking for survivors, wearing nothing more than tennis shoes, wool pants, and raincoats that qualify as only sort-of fire resistant. “These guys are incredible first responders,” Siegel exclaimed. “They do things we wouldn’t dream of doing.” What’s defined as an on-the-job injury, Siegel noted, is very different in the Ukrainian war as opposed to what he’s seen in his 15 years as a firefighter. “There, you’re not considered injured if you can still do the work,” he said. “They have a very high casualty rate and injury rate, especially the firefighters.” That’s where the boots come in. It doesn’t help any that the Russian military has also been targeting first responders in what Siegel described as “double-tap” shelling assaults. Russians will shell a school, a hospital, a shopping mall, or a retirement home. Then they pause, knowing that first responders will soon arrive. They launch again, this time aiming to wipe out the Ukrainian first responders. Project Joint Guardian was launched by San Diego– based firefighter Eric Hille calling for supply donations immediately after the Russian invasion. The sender,

COVER STORY

TO THE FRONT: Loading supplies for the troops

non-refundable airline tickets seemed like a good start. The airspace in Ukraine is closed; the closest we could get by air was Krakow, Poland, and from there, we would have to get a driver to take us to a border town called Przemyśl (don’t even try). Once there, we could catch a train to Lviv, Ukraine. When you don’t speak the language, or know the customs, and you’re going to be required to explain yourself a hundred times a day at military roadblocks, you will need a fixer. But it turns out we weren’t the only people needing such help. Everywhere we tried, all the traditional routes, we could find no one available. Then I remembered a cameraman, Kamil Chrapowicki, I had once worked with was from Poland, and perhaps he could help. He was able to come up with a man who had been a captain in the military, Andrij Ishchik, who has his own car, and is willing. “I am honored to be asked to help you. I thank you; all of Ukraine thanks you.” We arrived at the train station in Lviv around 3 a.m. The rain was pouring down, drenching the thousands of refugees coming and going. There were those who could not stay any longer, fearful for bombs falling on them, and then there were those who could no longer stay in Poland and simply had to come home. I realized I would have much to learn in the coming days. Tents populated the parking lot, tents filled with humanitarian aid workers. As there was, and is, a curfew in place, very few people are permitted on the road. But one of the volunteers there found us a ride in a small car with five others. The big bag with our helmets and body armor rode to the hotel on my lap. But in 10 minutes, we were dropped at Hotel Dnister on one of Lviv’s famous hills. Police-looking people everywhere, plain clothes, uniform, all staring at us, suspiciously, nervously. No sudden moves. Around 4:30 in the morning, I was tossing and turning on an ultra-firm mattress when I heard my first real air raid siren begin to wail. This was a sound I had not heard since the Cold War Red Scare of the ’50s and ’60s. At 9:30 the next morning, we’re off, or on.

First stop: Lviv train station. This place is humming, even busier than last night. Thousands of displaced people, people blown from their homes by cruise missiles and plain, gardenvariety bullets shot at them from ignorant russian soldiers who brought their dress uniforms with them because they were told they would be pelted with flowers by the people of Ukraine, who would greet them as liberators. Instead, they were met by Kalashnikovs, the very guns they brought with them to kill resisting Ukrainians. Dr. Tirej Brimo is a Syrian refugee who fled his homeland 11 years ago, only carrying what he could fit into a woven plastic carry bag. An ethnic Kurd, he had no chance there, where he was only a year away from graduating medical school. When he arrived in Great Britain, however, he had to start medical school all over again. It took 10 years, and now he spends all of his free time, his vacation time, tending to displaced people, refugees, around the world. (An interview with Dr. Brimo can be found at Independent.com). At a secret location outside Lviv, we filled a truck with supplies for the front. Cigarettes, medicines, food, first aid kits, socks, sanitary products, and more. Serhiy has been behind the front lines 11 times prior to this trip, and he invited us to come along. This is one of the few times in Ukraine that I really felt the need to wear the body armor. We visited a number of outposts on the front. At one location, where we were delivering supplies to a group of Ukrainian fighters, they pointed out a building about 100 yards away where they told us a unit of russian soldiers were gathered with orders to take out where we were now standing. Quickly, a fire fight began. And also quickly, the russian soldiers failed in their mission. We left Serhiy on the front lines as we headed back west to Odessa. We made the bad mistake of using Waze. Never use Google Maps or Waze in a war zone. May 7th: Andrij left at 7:30 this morning to get fuel for our drive to Odessa. At 10:30, we were beginning to worry. Air raid sirens have been going off non-stop, and there is a very real chance that something happened to prevent his return. Finally, his little Chevrolet diesel station wagon pulls up to the hotel.


C OV E R S T O R Y

WAITING IT OUT: Vika Murovana and volunteers during a bombing raid

Andrij was able, through a connection in the military, to get a full tank of fuel, plus two five-gallon jugs. We manage to get everything in the back of the wagon and climb in to a terribly smelling and ultra-dangerous vehicle. That’s when we made the mistake of turning on Waze for directions. Immediately, we are led directly to a bombed-out road. Andrij becomes agitated; Frank is telling him to “shut that fucking thing off. It’s going to lead us right into russian hands. It doesn’t know where the russians have control of the roads; it only knows the fastest routes.” You see, the main roads are in places under russian control, and if they get us, Frank had better get used to the taste of tattoos. A soldier at the front told us that russians would cut the Ukrainian heart tattoo off my arm and make Frank eat it. That is a gruesome thought. I’m not sure which would be worse — getting a tattoo removed from my arm, non-surgically, just cut off with a pocket knife, or having to eat it. Frank tells Andrij, “In times like this, Andrij, slow is fast, and fast is slow.” We finally made it to Uman, nine hours later. Despite war going on all around them, the people seem unconcerned, as they do everywhere shells are not falling directly on them. Now, 6 a.m. The last air raid siren to go off was in the very early morning, a few hours ago, so we want to get moving before anything changes here. Mother’s Day in Odessa: As one-fifth of the population will probably have fled Ukraine within the next month or so, life goes on in the region as though nothing extraordinary was happening. There are supermarkets on either side of the hotel where I am sitting writing this in Odessa. Other than the language on the labels, and the prices, I could have been in Whole Foods. They were filled with Sunday afternoon shoppers, casually picking through produce, checking the various cheeses and vast array of meats, buying incredibly inexpensive breads (Ukraine is called the bread basket of Europe, after all), and using the selfcheckouts like any other market anywhere. People lingered in the malls, smelling perfumes, trying on the latest fashions, buying kitchenware and bedding, all while air raid sirens blared through the air, piercing every-

thing. And out on the street, mothers and fathers gently pushed their strollers along promenades adjacent to the roadway, in no apparent hurry to get to a bomb shelter or underground. This despite the fact that this city was bombed four times yesterday, and many more bombing efforts have been called for today and tomorrow. I don’t think complacency is the right word, but people seem to be tired of running and hiding every time the sirens wail, and so, they carry on living. Happy Mother’s Day from Odessa. In downtown Lviv, there is a Palace of Arts, a beautiful building dedicated to Ukrainian arts. Today, however, it is a center for the distribution of supplies to refugees. Medicines, diapers, sanitary products, clothes for women, men, and children, all arriving in huge boxes that had to be sorted by gender and age into different rooms. These rooms are at one moment filled to overflowing, and the next, empty. Medicine no sooner arrives than it is out the door. Vika Murovana is a cartoonist and animation designer, but today, she eats, sleeps, and works here, running this incredible enterprise. She was on her way to Denmark to pick up a truckload of supplies.

here. His translator answered before he could. She said, “This beautiful, brave young man identifies the dead bodies. He does forensic analysis so that families can be notified, even for the russians. He risks his life every day here.” Peyton smiled humbly; we shook hands and went our own ways. A short walk from this battle-scarred monument was what used to be a kava (coffee) shop. There was a man out front mowing the lawn, and there seemed to be some activity inside, so I walked up the path and peeked in the door. Inside were Alex and Maria a young couple in their twenties, cleaning and trying to put things back together. “Any coffee today?” I asked. Alex replied, “The russians took my espresso machine.” This is a story heard everywhere, russians looting like pirates. “A customer gave me another machine, but it has bullet holes in it and I have not been able to make it work yet. Maybe later.” I could go on and on and on, and I have only been here for a month. The horrors are endless, but the resilience of these beautiful Ukrainian people is moving. They are determined to find their rightful place in the world despite this russian aggression. Slava Ukraini. n

Firefighters Organize cont'd who had served with the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Kosovo, was looking for firefighters with military experience. Hundreds responded, mostly from the United States, but there were some from Western Australia. The outpouring of donations — “used equipment,” by American standards — from fire departments across the country and in Australia, Siegel said, was stunning. Ballistic vests. Helmets. Militarygrade personal medical kits for quick trauma response. Two dozen jaws-of-life kits. Boots. Even a fire engine. Project Joint Guardian has dispatched two missions — each one three weeks long — though Siegel, who has a degree in supply train logistics and is an operations city fire captain, is too indispensable to be sent overseas. He stressed that he keeps his volunteer work separate from that for the City of Santa Barbara. “No taxpayer dollars used,” he said. Siegel got involved in part because he’s a firefighter. “That’s just what we do,” he said. It’s also because Siegel is descended from Eastern European Jews — from Poland and Czechoslovakia. Some participated in the Jewish revolt of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of World War II. Many met their end in Nazi gas chambers. Siegel’s parents grew up on the East Coast but met in San Francisco, both big fans of Jefferson Airplane. Siegel’s mother became a teacher, and his father was a public defender for 37 years. He and a brother both became firefighters. He joined the U.S. Forest Service, became one of the almost-mythical Hot Shots at Los Padres National Forest, and 10 years ago, he joined the City of Santa Barbara Fire Department. “My parents are proud of my work,” Siegel said, “but my mom will still tell me not to sacrifice myself for a tree.” As for his work on behalf of Ukrainian first responders, there’s

no hint of parental equivocation. “Being Eastern European Jews, they both understand what happens when people do nothing.” As CEO, Siegel must fundraise. Air fares aren’t cheap, and gas in Ukraine costs $20-$40 a gallon. And he handles tax issues, website details, securing Medivac insurance for volunteers, and gettingSANTA the right BARBARA people sent to the right place with theW. right equipment St at 324 Montecito the right time. Military experience is essential, Siegel said. Though so far the volunteers By thescrapes bag and cuts, it have only experienced is a war zone. And though there have been no encounters with Russian military, Siegel assumes Project Joint Guardian volunteers would be treated as hostile operatives. lb. Having a Ukrainian speaker in each contingent is also critical — at least two are in Chicken every group. The volunteers spend considerable time training their Ukrainian counterparts on the proper use of the equipment they’re sending. “We don’t want it to end up in some warehouse,” Siegel said. Luckily, it turns lb. out that fire departments in Sacramento and San Francisco have relatively large numbers of people of Ukrainian descent. Siegel’s been most struck by the unity of the Ukrainian people. “We’d heard there were all these different factions, but that’s about 100 percent wrong. We’re not running into peolb. ple who are Russians who happen to speak Ukrainian; we’re running into Ukrainians.” As for reports of Ukrainian Thin sliced anti-Semitism, Siegel said that’s been overblown too. “It’s there, but no more than here in North America,” he said. “Being ethnically Jewish is my personal motivation, but we’re nonlb.our feldenominational. We’re there to help low human beings.” If it were Russians who needed help, Siegel said, his crews would help Santa Cruz any non-combatants or POWs too. “They’re fellow human beings.” For more information, visit projectjointguardian.org.

Many have already expressed interest in doing so. She’s hoping to set up conferences and seminars, which her contacts in Ukraine are excited to facilitate. “They’re eager to be more effective,” she said. Tupchyk made it a point to thank another Santa Barbara organization — Direct Relief International— for helping her buy a wheelchair-accessible van and shipping it overseas. As she traveled throughout the country, Tupchyk saw no shortage of urban destruction. “It felt unreal,” she said. “Like a mirage.” But it was visiting her in-laws’ abandoned home in Kyiv — her husband is also Ukrainian-American — that really cut her to the core. “That house used to be so vibrant, always full of people,” she said. “Now it’s utterly lifeless. I broke down.” As the war drags on, Tupchyk observed,

ew league pairings and an offseason ramp-up that included spring ball and summer seven-on-seven has infused optimism and excitement into Santa Barbara’s high school football programs.

The Teams and Players to Watch This Season by Victor Bryant Dos Pueblos, San Marcos, and Santa Barbara high schools are now in the new eight-team Channel League, which comprises many of the larger public campuses in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, including Ventura, Buena, Oxnard, Pacifica, Rio Mesa, and Channel Islands high schools. Bishop Diego is fresh off a berth into the CIF Division 2 playoffs and will now take a huge leap up in competition as a result of joining the powerhouse Marmonte League, which includes Calabasas, Oaks Christian, Simi Valley, St. Bonaventure, and Westlake. Carpinteria remains in the Citrus Coast League along with Fillmore, Hueneme, Nordhoff, and Santa Paula high schools. League play figures to be as challenging as ever for the Santa Barbara area programs and may come down to a war of attrition with regards to keeping key players healthy throughout the regular season.

BISHOP DIEGO It all begins with senior Qu’Ran Gossett, a powerful running back who eclipsed 1,000 yards rushing last season, including transcendent performances in victories over Garces Memorial and Liberty of Bakersfield. “I’m extremely excited about it. I can’t wait to play the competition in the Marmonte League,” Gossett said. “With all of the D-1 players in the league, there will be a lot of exposure. I just can’t wait to see what our team can do.” Gossett will also play more on defense this season, where he will contribute at linebacker and likely have opportunities to rush the passer. At quarterback, A.J. Vele will take the reins after serving as Michael Luckhurst’s understudy last season. Vele is a good athlete with a sturdy frame, and his ability to bolster the run

game in addition to efficient passing will be critical. Other key contributors will be Bryan Trejo, who is a returning starter at cornerback and will also see a lot of time at receiver this season. Trejo will also take over the kicking duties after the Luckhurst family held down that position with superb results for the past several seasons. Sue Luamanu, who recently picked up a scholarship offer from Cal Poly, will pull double duty at offensive guard and defensive tackle. At 6'1" and 320 pounds, Luamanu is the strongest player on the team, as evidenced by his ability to bench press 225 pounds 26 times during a weight-lifting session this offseason, which would have been a good number at the NFL combine. Pasefika Salatielu will also start both ways on the offensive and defensive line, and at 6'3" and 245 pounds, he moves with quickness and agility of a much smaller player. Isaac Burquez will be a key contributor in the secondary as a safety. Roy Luvu is a returning starter at cornerback and will also play at wide receiver. A newcomer to watch is junior Misa Paiau, who will spell Gossett at running back and linebacker. At 5'10" and 210 pounds, he has the size and explosiveness to be a star in the future. “It’s a fun group to work with,” said Bishop Diego head coach Tom Crawford. “The number of two-way players that we’re going to be counting on is a concern, given the league we’re playing in, but we’ve kind of historically had to do that with our guys.”

CARPINTERIA The 2021 season was one to forget for the Carpinteria football team as the Warriors finished with a 0-10 record. It’s a numbers game for head coach Mario Robinson as the Warriors currently have 38 players on the varsity roster and are unable to field a junior varsity team. Development will be key for this relatively inexperienced team. “Everybody’s tough in the Citrus Coast League,” Robinson said. “Our goal is to improve and compete.” Talon Trumble will be taking over at quarterback for Carpinteria. It is his first year playing the position, but he has shown the ability to run the football with toughness and has a strong arm. Running back Erick Trejo was a first-team All-Citrus Coast League selection last season and figures to be a key cog in the Warriors’ offensive attack.

DOS PUEBLOS After going 2-8 last season, the Chargers are looking to improve on their win total. Junior quarterback Ryan Marsh has shown marked improvement after sharing the position with Jordan Rico a year ago. Dos Pueblos is now the northernmost team of the CIF Southern Section, but in order to make the playoffs, the Chargers will have to pull off a few upsets in Channel League play. “The downfall of this is you don’t have much time to prepare. You get two games and a scrimmage and then it’s league,” said Dos Pueblos head coach A.J. Pateras. “For me, I look at it as every week is a playoff game, and every week you have an opportunity to position yourself in league standings to qualify

for the playoffs.” David Buso is back at running back and linebacker after a solid 2021 campaign on both sides of the ball. His instincts and hard-nosed mentality will be key, as the Chargers will need to play a physical brand of football and win the line of scrimmage to have success.

SAN MARCOS Senior running back Andre McCullough is perhaps the most explosive player in Santa Barbara County, as he eclipsed 1,400 yards rushing last year and has dedicated himself in the offseason to getting bigger, stronger, and faster in search of a memorable senior season. Josh Engel returns at quarterback for his senior season after getting significant snaps as a sophomore and junior. His command of the offense and confidence as a passer are both much improved. Coach Ralph Molina has been rebuilding the program from the ground up after taking over in June 2021. After a full off-season program, the Royals are looking to reap the benefits of a renewed emphasis on the weight room and preparation. “They have really bought in,” said Molina of the weight room. “They understand what they have to do to compete.” Offensive lineman/defensive tackle Ebrahim Alfar was a focal point in the running game last season and will be a key asset again this season. Tight end/defensive end Johnny Frohling will also start on both sides of the ball. Owen Lauderdale will once again be a stalwart in the secondary at free safety. Running backs Nathan Jones and Brody Branstetter are both sophomores who are sure to contribute.

Sports cont’d SANTA BARBARA This is the final season for J.T. Stone as the head coach of Santa Barbara High, and he has a proven winner in junior quarterback Abel Renteria at the helm of his high-powered offense. The Dons have an embarrassment of riches at the skill positions, and Renteria is coming off a season where he passed for 1,800 yards and ran for nearly 1,000. “I call him Tim Tebow,” said Stone of Renteria. “Tebow wasn’t the best passer, but he moved the chains and he got the job done. That’s what Abel is, and he’s going to be able to do that in college as well.” At receiver, the Dons return juniors Winston Bartley and Jack Holdren, who were both heavy contributors last season and appear ready to explode. Sophomores Tomas Gil and Kai Mault will be added to the receiver rotation and offer high upside.

A.J. Gomez will anchor the offensive line at center, where he serves as a coach on the field. Freshman Malachi Johnston, whom Stone touts as a next-level prospect, will start at one of the tackle positions. On defense, Andrew Tobin is a key returner in the secondary. Nathan Barrios is back at linebacker and will once again split carries with Koa Herrera at running back. First-Team All-Channel League selection Jeffery Lechuga returns on the defensive line in addition to his kicking duties and will be counted on for increased production. “I told our guys that no matter what, our goal is to win the league title. I think that’s more important than winning the CIF championship this year,” Stone said. “I say that because the way the CIF seeds you is so screwed up. If we win this league, you can look down the 101 and really be proud of that.” n

1950s census party

C

hristmas came in April this year for the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society. Seventy-two years ago, the 1950 decennial census was taken across the nation, and the results were stashed in the National Archives. Collecting information about age, sex, race, employment, military service, and more, the census provided important data about the U.S. population, but the specifics were not released due to a rule that has kept the details of every census since 1870 private from the public for 72 years.

Complete Details of 1950 Census Now Available by Finnegan Wright Now, this treasure trove of un-redacted information from the mid-20th century has been released, enabling everyone to go back in time and discover secrets about family histories, famous persons, or next-door neighbors from the ’50s. “We’ve been helping others find their families in the census. At our 1950 census party, I helped someone find their father at a university,” explained Holly Snyder, the Outreach Chair at the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society. “It’s exciting to be part of their journey in finding their ancestors!”

In 1950, Santa Barbara was a very different place. The city population was half of what it is today, and the county population was one fourth. UCSB was still “The Santa Barbara College of the University of California” located on the Riviera, moving to Goleta later in 1954 and becoming UCSB in 1958. Lake Cachuma didn’t exist yet, with the Bradbury Dam only just beginning construction in 1950. Meanwhile, Goleta was still dominated by large ranches rather than suburban development. A decade earlier, the 1940 census had asked which households owned a radio, but by 1950, that question was gone. Instead, the new census asked different questions about employment and education, along with questions about military service influenced by the recent end of World War II. Many prior censuses had asked where people were living five years previously to gain insights into immigration; the 1950 census asked where people had lived just one year before because so many had been serving overseas in 1945. For anyone who’s curious about their family’s past, or who lived in their home 72 years ago, the data release offers a unique window into Santa Barbara life at the time. “We tend to not ask our parents and grandparents what it was like back then,” Snyder pointed out. “This is a good opportunity to start that conversation and capture their stories for future generations.”

to Michigan in the 1960s, Sonja Magdevski visited their homeland every summer to see relatives and the village where they’d lived for generations. “In the Balkans at that time, everything connected to the village,” says Magdevski, who appreciated the role that the community played in growing food, harvesting grapes, and so many other aspects of rural life. “Wine, whiskey, and beer were always part of the table, but it was always homemade. We grew up with a great perspective on different cultures. I was super intrigued by that. I had all these questions I wanted to answer, which is why I got into journalism.” After a childhood in Farmington Hills, Magdevski got her undergrad degree in political science from the University of Michigan and then worked toward a master’s in journalism at Michigan State. She won a Fulbright scholarship to study ethnic issues in Macedonia.

Rita Hills pinot noir each vintage; Clementine Carter, home to her fascination with grenache and other Rhône wines, named after her favorite Western character; and Feminist Party, a red blend. “The Feminist Party is about radical inclusion,” she says of her only blended wine. “Everyone is invited to the party to have some fun.” In 2015, Magdevski started dating winemaker Greg Brewer, cofounder of Brewer-Clifton, and they married two years later. Magdevski’s parents retired to Guadalupe, but her dad got restless, so he started working in vineyards. Her brother also lives here and works at Babi’s in Los Alamos. She hasn’t been back to Macedonia since 2009 — the pandemic threw a wrench in 2020 plans — but the lessons remain poignant. “In the village, everyone had to rely on one another,” she said. “The value of community and the importance of helping each other are very valuable to me.” For her, that relates directly to the Santa Barbara wine industry. “I can pick up the phone and call anybody, and I feel very confident that they would help me, and I would do the same,” she said. “We’re all competitors, but we’re also all colleagues. We have a lot of small producers and everyone has their own stamp.”

Developing the next generation of socially conscious leaders.


Our Story Future Leaders of America (FLA) turns 40 this year! This is a milestone accomplishment that few organizations reach, let alone organizations founded and led by people of color. FLA was founded in 1982 as a grassroots response to concerns about the high incidence of destructive behaviors in Latinx youth, including high school dropouts, gang activity, substance abuse, lack of parent involvement, and limited civic engagement, amongst other high-risk behaviors. For the past four decades, FLA has created stronger communities and provided a positive outlet for youth development through our education and leadership programs. FLA develops socially conscious leaders who are empowered to change the landscape of our civic institutions for the better by creating a college-going culture. Since its inception over 9,400 alumni have taken the call to leadership by becoming changemakers in education, nonprofits, government, businesses, law, and healthcare. Thus creating a more equitable and just world. Today, Future Leaders embraces its rich and longstanding history by renewing its commitment to ensuring Latinx youth achieve their full potential.

Our mission Youth Resiliency

Turning Tide’s Organic Cabernet Sauvignon

A

fter nearly two decades of building Joel Gott Wines from an idea to a powerhouse producer of affordable cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc, and more, Alisa Jacobson made happy waves by starting her own brand, Turning Tide, last year. This year, she combined her viticulture connections, ecominded intent, and sales savvy to craft an organically grown cab from Central Coast fruit at a volume and price that got Whole Foods excited. That wine, as well as an organic sauvignon blanc, will be in all California outlets of the grocery store this month, and then will be rolled out across the country this fall. On top of that, Jacobson is also releasing an even cheaper yet still delicious cab called AJ, which will be distributed by Skurnik Wines across the country later this year. But her dedication is to making sustainable wines from the Central Coast, where she now lives in Shell Beach. “Even though the concept of organic is well-known, it still only accounts for less than one percent of all farming operations,” explained Jacobson. “The challenge is finding enough organic fruit and, because it’s in-demand, the pricing is a bit higher.” Santa Barbara County is well-positioned to lead the way, compared to other regions where disease pressure is too high for organic fungicides and pesticides to function well. “Santa Barbara is close enough to the ocean to get wind that comes through in the afternoon, which helps with disease,” said Jacobson, who’s also using her good relationships with farmers here to convert more acres to organic. “The quality of the wines in the Central Coast and Santa Barbara County I believe are superb for the price,” she said. “This will help organic wines make more of a name for themselves, being of better quality while being economically affordable to —Matt Kettmann the consumer.”

PLAYING IT FORWARD HOLLY FELTS

BEAUTIFUL SANTA YNEZ VALLEY TAKES CENTER STAGE IN NEW RELEASE BY GUITARIST JONATHAN FIREY

L I F E PAGE 35

REGINA REESE

EMMA TRELLES NAMED ACADEMY OF AMERICAN POETS’ POET LAUREATE FELLOW

Emma Trelles

Jonathan Firey’s new album, A Taste of the Valley, is a reflective take on his Santa Ynez Valley home and what it represents for him.

Y

ears ago, when driving the San Marcos Pass to Santa Barbara and back five days a week for his daughter’s medical appointments, Jonathan Firey remembers a melody came into his head, inspired by the stunning mountainous views, and he felt an impulse to make a song. For the professional guitarist — whose 12-year career in Nashville has yielded an impressive catalog of original work that sits at the intersection of New Acoustic instrumental music, modern bluegrass, and folksy Americana — this is not unusual. Firey is used to creating music as part of daily life, funneling the world through his guitar. But the melody he heard at the top of the pass and the album it now anchors, A Taste of the Valley (available for streaming/download starting August 19), would come to document an important — and very personal — turn in the songwriter’s practice. “The week after we moved from Nashville to Santa Ynez in 2016, our baby daughter was diagnosed with autism,” Firey says of what led to those long hours in the car. “We could see she would need special care, so I shut the door on my commercial music career to focus on that.” Luckily for Firey’s fans, good melodies — like love — will always find a way: His daughter is doing great now, but, at the time, he explains, “It was a hard, dark

season for our family. We were in a holding pattern of uncertainty and grief when these melodies were coming to mind. So, out of that season of not really trying to do music, music started to grow again, and that’s how the record was born.” The son of a music store owner who also toured with a popular bluegrass band, Firey grew up playing guitar in a small rural church in Oklahoma, surrounded by musicians and destined to pursue a life in music. He cites influences beyond his gospel-inflected childhood, such as James Taylor, the Eagles, and classic country, but a formal music education isn’t among them. “I got kicked out of my high school orchestra because I played everything by ear and didn’t read music,” the musician says. “I would take the sheet music they gave me and turn it upside down on the stand. One afternoon, the horn players behind me noticed and started laughing, so I got in trouble for being too disruptive. By that point, I was already getting paid to play gigs on the weekends.” Decades later, Firey is still doing things his own way, this time with a selfproduced release (he played, mixed, and mastered the album) that immortalizes the Santa Ynez Valley’s beauty and history. These nine tracks are rich with cinematic quality. A blend of traditional bluegrass chords, mostly major key signatures, ringing open notes, and bluesy licks gives the

release an approachable, very contemporary New Acoustic sound, with diary-like texture playing a huge part. “When I found out about Figueroa, I would drive up there and hike around until a melody popped into my head,” Firey says of the track named after those mountains, which is the only song on the album that’s in a minor key. “You hear the history of the Valley in that one — it’s a little ghost-y and haunting. There’s an energy, an ancient heart of the Valley that reaches back to the Native American culture here. If you slow down enough, you can pick up on it.” Lover’s Loop hiking trail is another local destination that inspired a track on the album, as well as Cold Spring Tavern and the former Mattie’s Tavern, which get their due alongside the fabled San Marcos Pass. “When you reach the crest of the pass, headed toward Santa Ynez, that’s one of the best views you’ll ever see,” Firey says. “I’ve toured the country, seen the world, but that one is just incredible.” What’s next for Firey? Getting back up on the stage to share his music with live audiences again after a long break to work on the album. Upcoming dates include August 20 at Silk Road’s Kitchen in Solvang, and September 12 in Montecito. —Robyn Wise See jonathanfirey.com.

The Academy of American Poets recently named Santa Barbara Poet Laureate Emma Trelles as one of the 22 awarded 2022 Poet Laureate Fellows, which includes a $50,000 award to honor poets of literary merit appointed to serve in civic positions and to enable them to undertake meaningful, impactful, and innovative projects. Trelles — the ninth poet laureate of Santa Barbara and the first Latina appointed to this post — is understandably excited about the award. “I’m just deeply honored and thrilled and humbled that they would invest in my creative and community work,” she said of the honor, which she will use to further develop the Mission Poetry Series and have the series poets conduct four free seasonal community poetry classes in conjunction with the Santa Barbara Public Library. One poem written by each class participant will be selected to be published and publicly displayed in an outdoor poetry walk at the library’s branches and local schools. “The poems become a kind of stand-up artwork that folks can read and engage with in our public spaces. It’s a way for people to creatively express themselves and also learn about each other,” Trelles explained. “The next poetry walk will feature the poems of all the youth poets (ages 14-19) who sign up for our upcoming September 3 workshop, ‘Poetry as a Portal to Imagining Worlds,’ taught by poet and author Crystal AC Salas, who was a co-winner last year of the Alta California Chapbook Prize by Gunpowder Press.” Trelles will also use the award to continue to fund/develop the Gunpowder Press Alta California Chapbook Prize in 2022–23. Open to all Latinx poets in California, the prize amplifies and honors the voices of Latinx writers and their communities through publication in bilingual editions, a $250 honoraria, ten copies of their chapbook, and an invitation to read at the Mission Poetry Series. —Leslie Dinaberg

RECONNECTING WITH THE REAL JOEY MARTINEZ

Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real Returns, in Its Own Skin, at the Arlington by Josef Woodard

F

rom just the first few notable notes of “We’ll Be Alright,” the opening track of last year’s A Few Stars Apart, from Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, it’s déjà vu all over again, and once-removed. Floating gracefully over a slow-going waltz pulse, Nelson’s vibrato-basted and carefully phrased tones make no mistake or apology about Lukas’s noble lineage as Willie Nelson’s boy making good. In keeping with Willie’s general M.O., Lukas’s music is a positive and healing force, as he will have a chance to impart again when his band returns to town to The Arlington Theatre on Wednesday, August 24. Lukas Nelson, alongside his brotherly cohort Micah, has played local stages multiple times, from intimate late-night sets at SOhO to the “big houses” with hip elders. There were the Nelson boys, backing up Willie at the Chumash Casino in 2011, and more substantially, appearing as the actual backup band for the legendary Neil Young at the Bowl in 2016 (the semi-infamous curfew-buster night) and later in a set of tour warmup shows at the Lobero. All the while, though, Nelson has steadily evolved and deepened his band-leading resolve and impressive songbook, earning rights as an important artist in his own right. The Arlington show and tour celebrate continuing life beyond the COVID curtain and showcase A Few Stars Apart, album number six for the neo-country-rocking Promise of the Real. This “pandemic” project was recorded in mostly live, old-school style at Nashville’s storied RCA Studio A — a room where Willie worked in years past.

Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real perform at the Arlington on August 24.

On a tune such as “Hand Me a Light,” a neo-classic-country track on the new album (in duet with Rina Ford), Nelson dips directly into the troughs of historical and family influence without pretension. Other strong tunes include the “hit” “Perennial Bloom (Back to You),” and the title track, a memorial tribute to a family friend. It’s tempting to imagine Venn diagrams while analyzing Nelson’s links to music models of old, including Young’s

Buffalo Springfield, various eras of Willie-dom and shades of The Band. In the wider mass-media world, Nelson wrote eight songs for the retro-music-flavored hit film A Star Is Born. But that’s another lofty “side gig”; check out the real thing, a highly personal artistic project in motion. Lukas Nelson’s promise has, by now, been richly realized.

GUITAR WHIZ JESSE COOK COMES TO THE LOBERO MATT BARNES

Internationally Acclaimed Musician Combines Spanish, Trap, and 808 Influences Jesse Cook performs at the Lobero on August 24. by Leslie Dinaberg

T

hough he’s often referred to as a flamenco guitarist, Jesse Cook — who performs at the Lobero Theatre on August 24 — sees himself as more of a world musician. “I think of myself as being very influenced by flamenco music, and clinical techniques, and the guitar itself,” said Cook, in a phone interview from his studio in Toronto. “I’m trying to play music that represents my life: part Spain and Parklands, but also part North America, where people come here from all over the world.” He is currently touring with his 11th studio album, Libre; the 10-track release combines Cook’s iconic Spanish-flavored flair with Algerian multi-instrumentalist Fethi Nadjem, modern trap rhythms, and 808 beats. Written and recorded during the pandemic, Libre was inspired in part by the playlists Cook’s then-14-year-old daughter shared with him, many of which were inspired by trap (a subgenre of hip-hop) and 808 (a staple of hip-hop beats that originally came from the Roland TR-808 drum machine). When asked about his daughter being a musical influence, Cook laughed and said, “You know how teenagers change every year; they’re a totally different person. So I do have to be very clear: This was my daughter two summers ago; she’s in a totally different period now.” But the more he listened, the more intrigued he became, and he started incorporating some of her beats into his compositions. At that time, he was also recording a YouTube series, Love in the Time of COVID — a reimagining of past songs in a series of videos he’s released weekly across his social media platforms during 2021, and on which he played all the instruments, recorded, and filmed himself.

Known for his videos as well as the music, Cook said, “What I love about social media is that it really doesn’t matter if it’s incredibly wellrecorded, or if it was expensive or difficult to make … if there’s something magical in what you make … people will find it and share it. And once that happens, it kind of takes on a life of its own.” After Love in the Time of COVID, Cook came back to the current record and realized what it was missing was world music instruments. He called up a lot of friends and got all sorts of exotic instruments from all over the world on the tracks, “and I started liking it a whole lot more — that’s why the record is called Libre (‘free’ in Spanish).” Now that he’s finally been able to get out on the road and share those tracks for an audience, Cook said it’s been a bit of a revelation after 25 years of touring. “I’ve always loved it. But it also was always kind of a love-hate relationship, where in order to do the thing you love — playing music — you had to leave your family. … Having spent the last two-plus years sitting at

home with my family, I’m pretty happy to get back out on the road and play live with people in front of an audience.”

Jesse Cook performs at the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.) on Wednesday, August 24, at 8 p.m. For more information, visit lobero.org/events/jesse-cook.

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Aries filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky wrote, “All my life, I’ve been going around waiting for something—as if I were waiting in a railway station. And I’ve always felt as if the living I’ve done so far hasn’t actually been real life but a long wait for it—a long wait for something real.” If I could speak with Tarkovsky right now, I would cheerfully tell him that his wait will soon be over. I’d say that in the coming months, Aries people who have been postponing and postponing, who have been standing by and holding on and biding time, will have an excellent chance to begin inhabiting their full, rich destiny.

(Apr. 20-May 20): Taurus poet Sherko Bekas wrote, “Each joy I wear, its sleeves are either too short or too long, too loose or too tight on me. And each sorrow I wear fits as if it were made for me wherever I am.” With this as our starting point, Taurus, I’m pleased to report some good news. In the next three weeks, you will have zero sorrows to try on and wear like a garment. And there will be at least three joys that fit just right. The sleeves will be the correct length, and the form will be neither too loose nor too tight.

GEMINI

Independent.com/ newsletters

(May 21-June 20): Tips on how to get the most out of the coming weeks: (1) Create a big spacious realization by weaving together several small hunches. (2) Keep a little angel on your right shoulder and a little devil on your left shoulder. Enjoy listening to them argue, and don’t get attached to anything they say. (3) Do the unexpected until it becomes expected. Then abandon it and try a new, unexpected experiment. (4) Meditate expansively on the question, “How many careers can I have in one lifetime?” (5) Enhance your home so it feels even more comfortable.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22): Be fluid and flexible while still being rooted and sturdy. Be soft and sensitive even as you are also firm and resolute. Be mostly modest and adaptable, but become assertive and outspoken as necessary. Be cautious about inviting and seeking out challenges, but be bold and brash when a golden challenge arrives. Be your naturally generous self most of the time, but avoid giving too much. Got all that, Cancerian? Carrying out the multifaceted assignments I just described might be nearly impossible for most of the other signs of the zodiac, but they are in your wheelhouse. You are a specialist in fertile complexity.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22): “I’ve swung from ancient vines in the caves of Jamaica,” exults Hoodoo priestess Luisah Teish. “I’ve danced with delight around totem poles and pressed foreheads with Maori warriors. I’ve joked with the pale fox in the crossroads, then wrestled with the jaguar and won. I have embraced great trees between my thighs and spoken words of love to thunder while riding lightning bolts.” I offer Teish’s celebratory brag to inspire you as you formulate plans for the coming weeks and months. What exhilarating adventures will you give yourself? What expansive encounters will you learn from? What travels outside of your comfort zone will you dare? The time is right for upsurges and upturns and upgrades.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In his poem “The Pupil,” Virgo-born Donald Justice speaks of how he spent “a whole week practicing for that moment on the threshold.” I advise you to do the same, Virgo. The goal is to be as prepared as you can be for the upcoming rite of transition — without, of course, being neurotically overprepared. It’s fine and natural to honor the tension of anticipation, using it as motivation to do your best. One other thing: As you get ready, please have as much fun as possible. Visualize the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel when you’ve reached the other side of the test.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “One is always at home in one’s past,” wrote author Vladimir Nabokov. But I encourage you to rebel

against that theory, Libra. For now, find a way to NOT feel at home in your past. Question it, be curious about it, reevaluate it. My hope is that you will then be motivated to change how your history lives in you. Now is an excellent time to reconfigure your life story, to develop a revised relationship with its plot twists and evolution. Revisit and update some of your memories. Reevaluate the meanings of key events. Enchanting healings will materialize if you do.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Of all the signs in the zodiac, you Scorpios are most likely to regard that old pop tune by the Animals as your theme song. “I’m just a soul whose intentions are good,” croons lead singer Eric Burdon. “Oh, Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood.” But you may have less motivation to express that sentiment in the coming weeks, dear Scorpio. I suspect you will experience recordbreaking levels of being seen and appreciated for who you are. For best results, do this: (1) Inform your deep psyche that you have no attachment to being misunderstood. (2) Tell your deep psyche that you would very much like to be well understood.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Unless we are creators, we are not fully alive,” wrote Sagittarian author Madeleine L’Engle. She was referring to everyone, not just people in the arts. She believed that to be soulful humans, we must always make new things, generate fresh possibilities, and explore novel approaches. The restless urge to transform what already exists can be expressed in how we do our jobs, our parenting, our intimate relationships, and every other activity. You are now entering a phase, Sagittarius, when this initiatory energy will be especially available, needed, and valuable.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In her poem “Valentine,” Capricorn poet Carol Ann Duffy tells a lover she won’t give her a “red rose or a satin heart.” Instead, her token of affection is an onion, a symbol of multi-layered complexity. “Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips,” Duffy writes, “possessive and faithful as we are, for as long as we are.” She adds that the onion will “blind you with tears like a lover.” OK. I understand the tough attitude expressed by Duffy. Romance isn’t a relentlessly sweet, sentimental romp through paradise. But I don’t recommend that you imitate her approach to your love life in the coming weeks and months. Appreciate the sometimes shadowy and labyrinthine convolutions, yes, but don’t make them more important than beauty and joy and love. How about invoking the symbol of a pomegranate? It represents fertility and rebirth out of the darkness.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Be extra expressive with the people and animals you care about. Be even more amusing and generous than usual. Dare to be abundantly entertaining and engaging and empathetic. Make it your goal to draw out your allies’ dormant potentials and inspire them to love themselves even more than they already do. I’ll tell you about the endearing terms that author Vladimir Nabokov called his wife. Consider using them with your dear ones: “My sun, my soul, my song, my bird, my pink sky, my sunny rainbow, my little music, my inexpressible delight, my tenderness, my lightness, my dear life, my dear eyes, kittykin, poochums, goosikins, sparrowling, bird of paradise.”

PISCES

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Sometimes, you may feel you’re under the influence of a debilitating spell or hindered by a murky curse. Pisceans are prone to such worries. But here’s a secret. More than any other zodiac sign, you have the power to escape from spells. Even if you have never studied the occult or read a witch’s grimoire, you possess a natural facility for the natural magic that disperses curses. From the depths of your psyche, you can summon the spiritual force necessary to cleanse the gunk and free yourself. Now is a perfect time to prove to yourself that what I’ve said here is true.
